Yep that is plainly wrong. Will sort that one out.

Hmmm, is that obviouly nicer than the below? Its fully a line longer
for no benefit. But ignoring that, this seems to have snuck in to
CodingStyle hmmm ... will see what I can do if anything to stop these
being picked up I guess.

if (err) {
do_something();
return -ERR;
} else
do_something_else();
Andrew, as you merged the change to CodingStyle I'll take that as your
being ok with these being accepted.
